Vaginal Atrophy often occurs when there is a decrease in estrogen levels in a woman’s body. Unfortunately, this decline of estrogen can cause symptoms of vaginal burning, dryness, itching, in addition to painful intercourse. Often vaginal atrophy can result in tightening of the vaginal canal and may also lead to shortening. This decrease in estrogen can occur as a result of menopause or in women of all ages who have sadly had to endure chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy due to a personal history of cancer.
Approximately 50% of women in menopause deal with these unpleasant symptoms. Treatment options for these symptoms have been very limited. Due to the shame or embarrassment of this topic, it is often not discussed. Primary traditional treatment has been vaginal estrogen replacement therapy. However this treatment is frequently declined by patients due to associated increased risk of breast cancer, among many other potential adverse effects. Many women with a personal history of breast cancer do not even have this as a viable treatment option.
So when exactly does the risk outweigh the benefit? Many women are left to struggle with this very difficult decision.
“Why would I put something into my body that could potentially cause future harm?” Well, unfortunately, the answer is not so simple. Many women deal with these symptoms every day. Their suffering is not just physical, it also can be emotional and disrupt their quality of life. Women can be left with feelings of inadequacy and guilt which can have impact on marriages and other personal relationships both physically and emotionally.
